The goal of the ASI Chamber of Commerce is to act in the interest of the Alternative Investment Fund (AFI) industry.
This pertains to the regulatory, legal, and tax environment, particularly working towards its transparency, predictability, and the elimination of barriers that hinder the development of the capital market and innovation ecosystem.
We work towards shaping reasonable and rational practices. This involves the application of regulations governing investment activities in the form of ASIs, including participation in administrative proceedings, information exchange, and timely updates to Members regarding changes in practices, case law, or regulations that impact ASI operations.
The Chamber aims to bring together ASIs and entities managing them that operate with due diligence and adhere to best practices in ASI management. We strive for Chamber membership to serve as a seal of excellence for the affiliated entities.
We consider raising competence and awareness of applicable regulations to be crucial. This applies to both ASI management personnel and entities providing advisory services to ASIs (such as lawyers, accountants, and auditors).
The ASI Chamber of Commerce conducts regular, high-quality training in the following areas:
- Regulations and procedures applicable to ASIs
- ASI reporting requirements
- ASI accounting
- Treatment principles for ASI clients (investors)
- Transactional matters
The actions of the ASI Chamber of Commerce in the legislative process aim to remove barriers and adjust the legal environment for the operation of alternative investment funds. This particularly concerns provisions of the Commercial Companies Code and tax law.
